The mainsteam media came a-callin’ again and this time it came without any attitude. Woohoo!

I was interviewed last week about the popularity of vampire romances by Lisa Respers France, a reporter who told me she is a voracious reader. And, apparently, she is a reader with a wide open mind because there is not a whiff of ‘tude in the piece. How refreshing is that?

Ms. France also talked to J.R. Ward, Laurell K. Hamilton, Heather Graham, and Judy Scott of RWA about the appeal of the vampire and romance as one of the few bright spots in today’s economy. But I’m in there, too, talking about how smart women read romance. ¬†And how great writers write romance. And about how many intelligent women who read romance are now out of the closet. It’s good to be out of the closet, isn’t it?

My thanks to Ms. France for the fun time I had talking to her about one of my favorite subjects and for writing such a balanced and attitude-free article on romance.
